Hi chaps. I've had a Leisure electric range cooker for about 7yrs and it's had the same oven bulb in the fan oven until last week when it popped. Since then I've put 4 in but each one only lasts about 2 minutes. Two of them were quality bulbs too.
Why would a bulb keep popping? I looked in the holded and it seems OK to me.

Still got the old bulb? Show the old and new together.

What does the manual say - does it give a part number? If so, suggest you get one that the manufacturer supplies, not a third party outlet.

Are you using a correct specification oven bulb designed to withstand high temperatures? Ordinary "pygmy" bulbs might look right, but aren't the real McCoy.

Also, before sourcing a new bulb, do your research - LED versions are now available if you look hard enough.

Or are you saying the replacements go pop without the oven being on? In which case, as above, check out the OEM spare part.

They were all correct high temp oven bulbs. The last one was even from an appliance repair centre near me.
They are popping about 30 seconds to a minute into the oven being switched on.

Contact the manufacturer's Technical Department in the New Year, many TDs are often quite helpful.

There is your problem, they will buy in the cheapest items they can, so they make the most profit.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

It might be worth checking the lamp holder is OK and the bulb is a good fit in it and making good contact with the contact on the end,

Electric off before you poke around in it of course.
